01-09-2014 Enfield's Local Offer

The new approach to SEND places pupils at the centre of planning and re-inforces the idea of the whole school being accountable for their progress. To support our schools,  Enfield have created a project “Steering Group” which includes representatives from all areas such as Health, Education and Local Authority professionals as well as parent/carers and the voluntary sector. Through this project group, all aspects of the SEND reforms are being planned and developed. One of the project work streams is about the Local Authority providing a “Local Offer” - This provides all the information you need to know about in one place;

• Health

• Education

• Social Care

• Voluntary organisations

• Links to other boroughs
